London: Mel Gibson has finally spoken out defending himself over his outrageous audiotapes, which heard him using offensive and extremely racist language against ex- girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

"It’s one terribly awful moment in time, said to one person in the span of one day, and doesn’t represent what I truly believe or how I’ve treated people my entire life," TMZ quoted him as telling Deadlinehollywood.com.

"I’ve never treated anyone badly or in a discriminatory way based on their gender, race, religion or sexuality," he said.
Gibson claimed the tapes "have been edited," saying, "I don’t blame some people for thinking [I’m bigoted] though, from all the garbage they heard on those leaked tapes."
